EVERTON AT ST MARY'S

Post  SaintMike on Fri 18 Jan 2013, 11:12 am

Can Saints pick up more points on Monday? Everton will have seen our recent results and may be prepared well I'm thinking.

Hoping the match will go ahead as I have booked the evening off work so I can watch on Sky...

They'll have seen Saints have sacked the manager and probably fancy their chance now. Especially as 'new manager syndrome' never works in our favour.

Plus the fans are likely to be somewhat hostile.....can't see us winning this now.

Not sure I am even bothered now. At least if we lose will stick it to Cortese.

Not just no manager but we dont have a coaching staff, they have all gone as well!

Some of the comments at the bottom of this are well worth a read I think.....

Well we bossed the first half but we were a bit lucky to keep a clean sheet in the second. Could easily have been 2-2 but I guess a draw is a pretty fair result. And pleased the fans didn't stir things too much.

I thought Boruc played much better than i've seen him before, feel more confident about him now.

No sign of Forren? He's being given more time to bed in?

Will give more comments tomorrow, took ages getting back tonight as dimwits who put in the automatic tolls on itchen bridge still have a lane closed on Footie night!!! 40 minutes from Ocean Village to the toll booths!

Good game and good result against a hard side in Everton.

Thought players were excellent in their work rate but knew would not be able to maintain in 2nd half. Boruc was good and think he has made the position his, will make the odd howler but far more confident.

Fans were class in my view though biased. Got behind the team but also showed their respect and gratitude to Nigel.

Shame Cortese did the complete opposite. Media were "banned" from interviewng any fans outside the ground then not a single word about Atkins in the programme as if he didnt exist. What a complete w***ker. Sorry guys but if he wants to replace the manager then fine but no reason why that cannot be done with respect and decently. Fans showed that the "Lunatic fringe" as Rupert called us may be a bit common for our Nicola but they showed far more class than he did, he should be embarassed but the arrogant so and so wont even be bothered.

Well done the players and we will back the new guy and the players if they continue to put in this amount of effort.

Just to follow up a good performance especially the first half. Saints played the ball around and Ramerez was definitely looking to show the new guy. To keen to impress at times as always seemed to choose the most difficult route. Several good chances in the first half. Lambert played down the right by Ramerez hit a low hard cross in which was deflected behind by a defender but was oh so close to going in. Ricky had a 30 yard free kick beat Howard but came back of the post, then picked out from a corner Lambert had a good header on goal but was to straight and cleared off the line, thought had gone over the line at first but didnt look like on TV, follow up went unfortunately to Hoovield who while controlling his volley was straight down the middle at Howard. Lambert cut in from the right in penalty box got to by line cut back in then tried to place around Howard but would have had to be a superb strike to beat Howard last night. Then Ramerez on a run in the box from left to right ghosted past a defender for a good shot towards the near post but again Howard there to palm away. Probably 5 really good chances to score and on another day a couple of those will go in. Also could have 2 penalties one a blatant push on Yoshida by Distin, yes the ball was running out of play but was still in when Distin with both arms just pushed Yoshida over and ref had perfect view. just when did the rules changes to say a push doesnt count if has lost the ball. yes would have been a soft penalty but was a foul. Then Lambert was again pushed then had his shirt pulled with ref again having great view, bottled it I am afraid and think also Fellani's Godfather with the amount of fouls he was allowed.

Guly probably worked the hardest I have seen, Puncheon was industrious without really being a goal threat Luke shaw again look outstanding.

Second half knew would come under pressure as unlikely to be able to match the first half intensity and credit to Everton who do have a high level of fitness and they started creating chances. Boruc showed a much greater level of confidence but he is a nutter. His warm up at start of second half was to slap his face with his hands several times, not just a tap but real slaps to wake him up. Nutter and I am beginning to like him!

Everton should have scored when Jelavic had a great chance from a cross but pretty much fell over the ball with just Boruc to beat. Fellani had a header well saved but only after he had shoved his defender out of the way, blatant foul not given. Saints weathered the storm and for last 15 minutes matched Everton, Ramerz, Guly and Puncheon came off for Rodrigues, Davis and De ridder for last 5 minutes, we had a few corners to the end but couldnt quite get that goal. One funny incident was Puncheon must have been caught short and ran of the pitch then re appears a couple of minutes later, which lead to chants of Jason Puncheon he ***** when he wants. wasnt funny at the time though as Ramerz went down injured and at one point only 9 players on the pitch.

Boruc 8 Looked strong good perfomance but be prepared for the odd clanger
Shaw 8 another composed game, good overlaps and yet more experience
Yoshida 8 another solid game lots of blocks
Hoovield 7 kept it simple though never looke dcomfortable whne with the ball
Cline 6 taking time to get back to his best
Cork 7 worked hard but tough battle with fellani
Schneiderlin 8 hope he continues to impress his new boss
Puncheon 7 worked hard but no rael threat going forward
Guly 7 never seen him work so hard but again not a great theat attacking
Ramerez 7 some of thsoe flashes where he looks real class other time gave the ball away
Lambert 7 unlucky first half with several attempts another day could have had 2 or 3.

Everton were tough but not sure if they will be top 6 if they didnt have Fellani he was their main palyer and without him think would have been an easy win

Watching on Sky, I thought quite a few of the corners from Ramirez were pretty useful. One wasn't far from going straight into the net but not sure whether that was intentional.

Most of our corners first half were quite poor, hit deep to the back post but no one there! Good tactics as the odd one that was good caught them out! Guly took good corners the other week from the left side but didnt take on Monday.
